How to Help a Loved One Get Treatment for Depression

Watching a loved one struggle with depression can be a distressing experience, but there are proactive steps you can take to support them in seeking treatment:

Encourage your loved one to seek professional help from a qualified mental health provider. Although you care about your loved one and want to help them feel better, research supports that individuals with depression experience significant improvement under the care of a mental health professional. Offer to assist them in finding a reputable treatment center that offers comprehensive care for depression. 

Studies show that social support is associated with improved treatment outcomes and mental health. Be sure to let your loved one know you are there for them and that you believe in their ability to overcome depression. Offer your loved one emotional support and reassurance throughout their treatment journey.

Research suggests that individuals are more likely to engage in treatment when they feel empowered and supported in their decision-making. Therefore, it is important to respect your loved one’s autonomy and decision-making process regarding their mental health treatment.
